Do You Smoke???? I first smoked when i was 12 years old. both parents smoked and as teens and preteens we thought we were big and tough by smoking. i was hooked by 15, by 16 my dad was buying them for me lol. i quit a few times off and on. i am 44 now, i have been fighting rectal cancer for four years now. i still have trouble with the cigs, i know they could be the reason i am in terrible pain, these four years, but i still find it possible to have smoked for 16 months of the four years. not a straight 16 months but 5 then 6 then 2 then 3 months, now i have thrown them down again, swore to myself no more, i am not paying to die. these are the most horrific habit i have ever had. i still laugh when the tobacco industry first went to trial, and all the experts that testified how tobacco was non addictive. shows what a joke our judicial system really is in 1990 i think if you were 12 years old or older you would have seen someone with a tobacco problem, lol non addictive. where do you stand on smoking. i stand on this. i think it is a horrible habbit, i think it should be outlawed above marijuana, maybe even cocaine?? no more choice, i would not have a problem if i had to by them in the dark on some street corner. how about you????????

Smoking cigs for 6 years now... I will stop someday, but not until we're no longer broke all the time. Stress + Life = Need Smokey. And I disagree as for outlawing. It's a personal choice. I think other controlled substances would cause less damage if they were legal choices too.
